Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive NIght Cream - Hello Glowing Skin #RadiantWithAVEENO!

Disclosure Statement: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions expressed are my very own and were not influenced in any way.  Please note that your opinion will vary from mine.

I've always known about Aveeno products and had actually tried their daily moisturizer, several years ago.  I really liked it but I'm not completely sure as to why I didn't continue to buy it; on that note, I wasn't hesitant to try out their newest product, Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream.
I've used so many night creams it's unreal but if you're like me, you probably have too! What makes one different from the other? For me, I have oily skin so some moisturizers will make my face even oilier and that, my friends, I seriously DISLIKE!

Ok, so what makes this moisturizer so special?  Well, for me, IT WORKS! The first night I used it, once it was absorbed into my face, I noticed how soft my skin felt. Now, I have to say this... I have used a lot of moisturizers that have made my skin soft so with that said, I wasn't too impressed. Now, this product contains a proven concentration of Active Naturals Total Soy Complex boosted with tone-evening vitamin B3 to help keep you looking fresh and luminous.  This cream is suppose to help with texture, dullness, blotchiness and brown spots.  I'm 36 and I could use a little toning, the texture of my skin is ok with a few dry patches, I have a small amount of blotchiness but no brown spots; after a couple of weeks of using this product, I have noticed that my skin is luminous, radiant and the blotchiness has greatly diminished. I haven't noticed any toning, yet, but maybe after a few months of using this product I might see a difference.

Overall, I'm pretty impressed with this product.  One thing I can say, that differs from other products I have used, is that my skin is definitely more radiant and has a nice, healthy glow to it. Will I continue to purchase this product? I think I will but time will tell; after using all of the product, if I'm still seeing results, than you bet I will.

You can purchase this products for $16.99 - not too bad!

Campus Book Rentals - Buying textbooks is a thing of the past!

Campus Book Rentals - your textbook alternative
*Disclosure Statement:  I was compensated for this post by Campus Book Rentals.  I have not personally used this website so your opinions may very from mine.
How many of you have or are planning to return to college?  Have you seriously thought about rental your textbooks vs. buying them?  For me, there are certain textbooks that are necessary to keep while others tend to just take up unnecessary space!
I was attending school, once upon a time, and for personal reasons I did not complete.  Now I'm stuck with the textbooks and have absolutely no need for them. Had I known about Campus Book Rentals, I would have saved a lot of money AND I wouldn't be stuck with these books.
Attending school can become a financial burden so doesn't textbook renting just sound logical?
One of my textbooks, Loosening the Grip, would cost you $59.76 on Amazon but to rent from Campus Book Rentals would only cost you $35.92 for 55 days rental.  For me, I Ididn't even need the book for a full 55 days yet I paid a pretty penny for a book I have no use for now. I could have saved over $20 AND I would have returned the book... yep, would've been nice!

Check out some of the awesome benefits you'll receive:

  • Free shipping both ways
  • You can actually highlight in the textbooks! 
  • Save up to 80% just from renting
  • 30 day Risk Free Returns

I like the idea of being able to highlight in the textbooks but I'm not too sure that's a good thing. Personally I think it might be a little confusing with everyone else's highlighted information; other than that, I think that option is pretty neat. 
Note to self** should I ever plan on attending school again, make sure I check out Campus Book Rentals... as should you!

Your feet deserve the best shoes! Check out the OOcloog review and giveaway and #FeeltheOO

I have to brag about OOFOS shoes and since I am pregnant, I have found that they simply are the best things that have happened to my feet and back; these shoes would be the one to try if you suffer day to day with back problems.

Back in July of 2012, I reviewed their wonderful OOriginal Thong (you can find that review HERE) and I was so impressed with them that I was even more excited to be able to try out their newest (to me) addition - the most comfortable shoe ever - the OOcloog.

First off, let me tell you a little bit about OOFOS technology. They are made of cutting edge material called OOfoam, which absorbs shock to lessen pain. It also reduces fatigue (I have a huge problem with that being as I am pregnant), and delivers unparalleled cushioning to recharge and rejuvenate your feet. So all that sounds wonderful but does it actually deliver?

Every since I've given birth to my oldest (she's 14 about to be 15) I've had back problems. If I'm cooking or washing dishes, within 10 minutes I'm hunched over in discomfort.  That's really upsetting when cooking and cleaning are a daily part of my life as I'm sure it is yours too. Heck, the thought of going to the mall is mostly out of the question, unless it is necessary.... and some of us know that to a 14 year old, it is VERY necessary! 

Back when I reviewed the OOriginal Thong, the local fair was in town the following month and I was eager to try them out since I was to be on my feet for several hours.  I was highly impressed and at the end of the night I noticed that I had little, hardly noticeable, back pain.  I didn't even have the normal throbbing and I didn't feel no where near as tired... shoot, I had the energy to stay longer but fortunately we ran out of money.  Now that I'm pregnant, I have a whole new set of problems! 

The winter weather led me to try the OOcloog and now they are all I will wear! OOFOS has got to be THE MOST comfortable shoes ever!  I don't just say this, as I always give my honest opinions with the items I review. I have never found a more comfortable shoe and my search was over once I was introduced to the OOriginal Thong and now the OOcloog will be my go to shoe for the fall and winter months. I treasure and most definitely Feel the OO Experience, day in and day out!

Oh yea, let me mention that OOFOS shoes are unisex so both you and your spouse can Feel The OO Experience!

5 stars all the way around!

Want to purchase a pair for yourself?  You can purchase directly from their website at 

Want to keep up-to-date with what's going on over at OOFOS?  Follow OOFOS on Facebook and Twitter. 


OOFOS wants to Make YOO Feel Better by giving yoo the chance to win a pair of OOcloogs.

Entrants must be 18+ and live in the United States.

The more entries you complete, the better your chances are of winning!

Good luck to everyone!

L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream 810 Fair - Review

When it comes to BB creams, there are more and more out there to chose from.  Honestly, I've never really had the desire to try them due to the FACT that I have VERY oily skin.  I can wear mineral makeup well but liquid/cream foundations - not so well.  I was given the opportunity to try out L'Oreal magic BB Cream in 810 Fair. As with any product, I'm very skeptical as to how well it will hold up next to my oily skin.

What you first notice is that this cream comes out as white but as you will find, it melts into your face to give you the perfect shade while magically transforming your face into a beautiful, smooth surface to work with.  I have such a hard time when finding foundation colors that will work with my skin tone.  They end up being noticeably dark and I end up tossing in the trash.  The lightest color available (810 Fair) was a perfect match for me.  This product is right up there with other tinted moisturizers with the exception of having a few special agents to make it stand out from all the rest. L'Oreal Magic BB Cream primes to smooth skin's texture while perfecting to hide imperfections.  It also hydrates for all day moisture while correcting your skin for a healthy looking even complexion.

I was impressed with how even my skin tone was.  The coverage was great and my skin truly did feel hydrated throughout the day.  My face did become oily, as expected, but I did notice it wasn't as bad as with other liquid/cream foundations I've used. If you're an oily girl like myself, this really is a good product but don't expect to go throughout the day without having to blot and/or reapply.

Would I purchase this product once I've used it up?  I absolutely will!  All you can do is give it a try for yourself.  What works for one doesn't necessarily work for another but it sure doesn't hurt to give it shot as I was truly impressed!

*Disclosure: I received a complimentary product from SheSpeaks/L'Oréal to facilitate this review

Best iPhone Photo Apps/Accessories & Ways to Share with Family and Friends

One of the greatest benefits of an iPhone is its advanced photo and video capabilities. The resolutions have improved dramatically, creating photos that are of far superior quality than earlier cell phone cameras.  The ability to be creative with the iPhone camera has also increased the availability of a number of different photo apps and accessories.

Photo Apps:

These apps permit the photographer to create all different effects at the time of the photo and have them right on the phone and not in a program. There are also apps that allow instant photo sharing. Here is a list of some of the many great photo apps available for the iPhone.

  • Camera+ - This is an editing app that has been upgraded several times. Special effects like back lit, portrait, simulated flash and sunset can be applied. Filters are available by taking your original pic and placing it in a grid to play with each effect before downloading or sending.
  • Gridditor – This is an editing app that places your unfiltered original in the center of a grid of four out of 22 filters. This is a really great app to help show the transition of your image when using a filter.
  • Photo Toaster – This app has been popular for a while but has been upgraded. You can get countless special effects by using an onscreen slider. Special effects like black and white, retro and many others are available. This app gives enough control to get your pictures to look exactly how you want them.
  • Kit Cam – This app is unique as it offers 30 different films, 13 lenses and 18 different frames to customize your pictures in virtually limitless varieties. You can do a two finger rotation of some lenses for more effects and even use them with video.
  • Old Booth – Turn your pictures into vintage sepia and even make your subject wear a different hairdo from a different era. This is a fun app that allows you to create new looks and frames in old fashioned styles.   
  • Tiltshift – This app uses an old technology and applies it to digital iPhone pictures. With Tiltshift you can focus on a small area of the photo while blurring the rest, creating a look much like a vintage film, zoom lens, close up.
  • Comic Touch – This is a really fun app that places cartoon speech blurbs into your photos. Now your pets can have something to say!

Photo Accessories:

Here is a list of some great iPhone photo accessories that enable you to take interesting photos and also some ways to display your beautiful images.

  • Olloclip – Olloclip is a wonderful little lens that slips over the corner of your iPhone. It comes with three different lens – macro, wide angle and fisheye. Now you can create some unique, crazy photos all on your iPhone.
  • Photo iPhone Cases – Tiny Prints, an online photo printing site, allows you to take your beautifully crafted photos and place them on a custom case. Use them for your own case or give them out as gifts!
  • GripTight GorillaPod Stand – The GorillaPod is a super flexible tripod that helps to secure your phone almost anywhere to take that perfect self-portrait and is great for steady photo shooting.

There is a whole world of photo apps out there and most can be downloaded for less than a few dollars from he App Store. Whatever limitations you feel you have when taking pictures with your iPhone, like shooting night shots or panoramas; there is an app to help you. All you need to do is explore to find the perfect app or accessory for you.
